Some comments here are spot on. She's condescending, doesn't listen, rushes to end appointment. long waiting period, and walked out charged more than she had just quoted me in the patient room, plus did not do all the work we agreed to for the price (the price I ended up paying more fore when I left). She leaves you feeling like you're a burden on her time and boy am I dumb for having questions.

After two visits I will not return. The waiting area is over packed with patients who wait, on average, over 45inutes past the scheduled appointment time.

Once in a room, Dr. Bettencourt, will spend no more than 5 to 10 minutes with you. The entire time she will interupt, not listen to your concerns and will even tell you that your reason for visiting is "not a priority".

Having a medical degree myself I understand that this is not acceptable. Bedside manner is very important and this is something Dr. Bettencourt is seriously deficient in.

Dr. Bettencourt is very rude and her staff is very unprofessional. I asked several staff members how many stitches my husband had.......one staff member replied "maybe we could take off the bandages and I could count them"!!!!! The doctor never spoke to me!!!!

Dr. Bettencourt is all about making money. She will NOT stitch up the wound the same day even if I begged her. She says it works better to wait till the next day. Seven other surgeries at other facilities always sewed me up immediately, while still numb. By waiting till the next day, it requires more shots and is considered another surgical procedure and does not consider the patient's time. Waiting is excessive. She also used a lab not on my plan, costing me more money. She squabbles with staff in front of customers, etc. I will not go back and will not recommend her.

Charged a lab fee that I was told would be written off. Wait time too long. Non responsive billing department.

Dr Bettencourt's staff has A LOT to be desired! Went to get results of biopsy and the nurse/assistant, whatever they are called was all ready and wanted to take out stitches and freeze cancer of my arms! I had no stitches and no cancer on my arms! She also did not have a clue why I was there. I had to explain to her what we needed and why we were there. And it was not to have non exsistant stitches removed and cancer on my arms!!! Extremely short and curt in answering the questions ref how to care for the biopsy that was taken. Extremely rude!

I had requested one nurse over the other because the one didn't numb me enough when I had something removed and was very painful (took 4 more shots to numb). What nurse did they give me the one I didnt want. I was there 4 months ago and was quoted $200.00 for a procedure when I went back now that same procedure was $400.00 and was told I had Rosacea and she wanted to sell me a $150.00 product that she said worked better than the perscription.I no longer trust her or her staff.

I visit this doctor twice and will never go back. Upon first visit, I found Dr. Bettencourt to be very rushed, rude, and condescending. She avoided answering my simple questions; she did not listen to my concerns and she was more focused on what she had to say. She did not pay attention to me when I could get a word in edgewise. Most of the time she would talk over me and tune me out. Very unprofessional. The absolute most unprofessional doctor I have ever met. I had to visit her a second chance due to a required follow up appointment. Thinking perhaps Dr. Bettencourt was having a bad day on the first visit, I gave her the benefit of the doubt. The second visit reinforced my thoughts of her from the first visit. This person is in the wrong profession, she has “no” people skills. Anyone would be absolutely appalled if they could see a video of my experience with Dr. Bettencourt. Horrible experience.

In a nutshell: Overbooked, runs behind schedule, rushed, rude, & condescending. And why is it so dark in the waiting room and so hot in the patient rooms? Never going back.
